chairs of the no label movement, joe manchin and former presidential candidate jon huntsman. thank you both for joining us and, senator manchin, let me begin with you. the motto of no label, stop fighting and start fixing. admirable goals, but what is your specific goal and how do you intend to get there? >> george, basically jon and i were talking about this earlier, you know, i've been there two years in the senate and i have yet to have a bipartisan meeting that's been organized where republicans and democrats in the senate sit down and work through their problems. think about just in the senate we don't have that type of dialogue going on from democrats and republicans. we don't even know our colleagues over in the house. no labels gives us that venue. >> and ambassador huntsman, there's going to be a test of that strategy on so many issues including the issue of preventing gun violence one month after newtown. i was surprised to see there's no mention of that issue on the no labels website. pretty conspicuous in its absence. is that a punt? >> this is not about finding the end poi
're dealing with a $500 billion front and cut, you would be shaving off quite a bit. but senator joe manchin has been out, showing the chart. u.s. seen the defense budget growth over the years. the number of american -- you have seen the defense budget to grow over the years. i suspect the contract and dimensions of this will be hit very hard. you'll be cutting through a lot of muscle to try to keep the bones safe. guest: senator hagel said recently that the pentagon was bloated. he says it has not been a strategic review in years. the department of defense is already cut. there's already been chairman os martin dempsey has said that if the sequester goes through are some cuts go through, -- or some cuts through -- the pentagon has been thinking about these things for the past four years. host: we're taking an in-depth look into senator chuck hagel, and we're using a lot of material from our video library. a lot of it is available to you as well. -- all of it is available to you as well. c-span.org. from 2006, senator hagel had this to say about the middle east.

. senator joe manchin, west virginia democrat, and a-rated member of the national rifle association, says legislation can't be made with a narrow scope that only addresses gun regulation or the mental health system. >> as adults, we have a responsibility to sit down and have an adult dialogue and try to have a comprehensive package that works. >> reporter: but the nra is gearing up for battle. >> you don't want to bet your house on the outcome, but i would say that the likelihood is that they are, they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this congress. >> reporter: vice president joe biden met with several stake holders in the gun debate last week. he's expected to make recommendations to the president on how to reduce gun violence by tuesday. in the meantime, one senator is calling on stores that sell firearms to take the first step. >> i'm urging our country's major gun retailers, like wal- mart and sports authority, to suspend sales of modern assault- style weapons until congress is able to fully consider and vote on legislation to curb gun violence. >> repor
, it will be a difficult climb. i think it is interesting and surprising that joe manchin is in this fight, at least in terms of the background checks and i think we have seen this energy now on the gun control side that we haven't seen. >> 92% of all americans in favor of a universal background check. nra households, 85%, chris. we have said that number many times. but going back to this group of senators who are working on this deal reportedly, tom coburn, mark kirk, we know his ties to illinois and the chicago area, of course. and chuck schumer and we have seen legislation in new york, even i just saw a report that governor cuomo approval rating took a dip as a result of some people believing he went too far with new legislation in the state but when you look at this group, these four men here, are they the best faces to at least get something moving coming to background checks? set aside legislation on assault weapons. but just on background checks and widely supported. >> i mean, i think it's a good diverse mix in terms of if you will, centrist conservative democrats, moderate democrats. you ha
of the shooting, we saw some key moderate democratic lawmakers like joe manchin come out and say he was open to this conversation. he was open to having a debate about gun control, considering some of these measures. it's unclear whether that's going to be dissipate at all now as we've had more time elapse since the shooting and that emotional momentum may have slowed a little bit. we also see the nra. they're very powerful. still powerful. and they have a lot of allies in congress, not just among the republicans, but also with some democrats. the new senator from north dakota who was out over the weekend certainly doesn't seem open to a lot of these proposals. so it's going to be a legislative challenge for the white house to push forward whatever proposals they develop and get those passed in congress. >> are there people in the house and senate who have sort of cred on both sides they think they can use. we have heard a number of gun owners, people who have ratings with the nra saying things like you don't need an assault weapon to go duck hunting. >> you know, there are some. i think we'

, thank you very much. >>> joe manchin of west virginia complained the hagel confirmation had become, and i'm quoting him now, a toxic process where there is once again quoting, guilt by conversation. i'm joined by gloria borger up on capitol hill, dana bash. gloria, it was a tough, tough day for chuck hagel and some people think he didn't necessarily help himself. >> no. i think he didn't quell any of the skepticism about him and in talking to a couple of republican senators on the hill, the response that i got was that he seemed unsteady in many of his answers, even on the most predictable questions, as jessica pointed out. he was clearly going to get a question from john mccain on the iraq surge. he didn't answer that to mccain's liking. and later, you know, on that issue of iran, which we knew was going to be a flashpoint for him, he seemed to confuse the president's policy. let's take a listen to that. >> i have just been handed a note that i misspoke and said i supported the president's position on containment. if i said that, it meant to say that i obvious cannily his position

't make his riches cutting his pay. >> brian: joe manchin is the only democrat that i can see that signed on. what do you think on the other side, some people on the left are calling it a gimmick. >> yeah. they're calling it a gimmick. i think leadership in the senate called it stupid. only in washington, d.c. do they call budgeting stupid. that's why we're $16 trillion in the hole right now. everything is done in washington, d.c. by crisis. everything is a crisis. whether it's the debt ceiling, whether it's sequestration, doesn't matter, whatever it is. everything is done by crisis. and we're going to push this forward. there is going to be a vote in the house tomorrow. president has already said if it's in the legislation, he'll sign it. so there is an opportunity. i've talked to joe. joe signed on to this thing and he's promised me that he'll trio get some of his colleagues on his side of the aisle to support the idea. >> brian: senator, i thought what was most encouraging to come out of the sunday shows david plouffe says the president finds it encouraging. so the white house would su
